Shattered Dreams, Broken Pieces
From the time she was a little girl, Donna Walton dreamed of becoming a star. But in 1976, at the age of eighteen, her life took a tragic turn. Diagnosed with a dangerous form of bone cancer, the bright young woman found herself facing the loss of her leg in order to save her life. From there, her spirit was broken, and only shattered dreams remained-until she began the long journey of putting the pieces together once again.
An eye-opening tale of reinvention, Shattered Dreams, Broken Pieces is the story of the decades Walton spent working to rebuild her world and discovering new confidence and a fresh sense of purpose along the way. Through disasters, setbacks, trials, and tribulations, the author continues to prove that no crisis is too large to recover from-and offers readers valuable insight for overcoming obstacles of all types.
Whether you've facing disease, disability, job loss, or divorce, the message of this inspirational memoir is clear: if life steals your dreams away, be sure to steal them back, and the result may end up better than you ever imagined.

It has been years since i read a good book and actually finished it. Let alone finished it in 5 days. To say this book was good would be an understatement. Ms. Donna (Dr. Donna Walton) journey is one of great strength, determination and conviction.
